Seems like I have had to make way too many sympathy cards lately. Somehow clouds and sympathy cards seem to go together..in my head anyway. I sponged the background using a torn paper towel and ballet blue ink. I like the ragged look that the towel makes rather than a smooth line of paper. Black embossing and stamping finishes this very simple card.

Wow! Stunning, Sue! I love your clouds- they are so realistic looking and have sooo much depth. Amazing, and perfect for this sympathy card. I may have to case. So sorry you needed this im the first place. I am needing them all to often as well.
